spotted in my desert garden
Thank you, Juan!
This is a Leaf-cutter bee (Megachilidae), probably Coelioxys genus
You are welcome, it's my pleasure ;)
Could be. I can't find any images of that species with such white stripes though. ? Will keep looking. Thanks as always for your help! :-)
I have found on this site sth similar determined as Apis mellifera lamarckii or Egyptian honey bee, http://keepingbee.org/species-of-bees/ see if it's maybe that!
